Armchair explorers of Google maps recently discovered an unexplored patch of blue on the rogue island nation of Nauru. Researchers from Nauru International University visited the site and confirmed the existence of a freshwater lake which is filled with colorful glowing jellyfish. Nauruans are uncertain how they never noticed such a large body of water on the 21 square mile island but the new Jellyfish is getting a lot of attention. The Nauruan glowing jellyfish is unique in that it can live in fresh or saltwater at any temperature and it has become quite a hit in Japan where the otherwordly creature is kept a specially made, table top aquarium. No one knows why the jellies glow or how they change color in unison but the Nauruan jellyfish is sure to become popular with aquarists worldwide. Jim Stime of Jelliquarium hasÂ received the first US shipment of these unbelievable cnidarians and he has already reported the successful reproduction of the Nauruan jellyfish to the polyp stage. Jim is keeping the Nauruan jelly polyps in his new Polyp and Ephyra system and he expects the polyps to strobilate all over the place within the next few weeks.
